Romanian tradition: Easter eggs
The tradition of Easter eggs in Romania is different from that practiced in France. Indeed, in Romania 85% of the population is Orthodox so Easter is the most important holiday.

Easter egg game
From Easter, a game is set up between the Romanians which consists of hitting the egg of his table neighbor while saying “Hristos a înviat” (Christ is risen) and the other must answer “Adevarat ca a inviat” (He really came back to life). Whoever ends up with his broken egg loses!
